Frido Mann: Democracy Will Win - Lecture and Conversation

During extensive lecture tours, Thomas Mann, Frido Mann’s grandfather, addressed American audiences in his speech “The Coming Victory of Democracy” and warned of the dangers of fascism for liberal democracies: “The social renewal of democracy is the presupposition and the guarantee of its victory.”

Following in his grandfather's footsteps, Frido Mann is going to give lectures in more than a dozen cities in the United States and Canada. He will address the current crises in the American and European democracies and the need for their restoration on the basis of transatlantic dialogue.

The lecture will be followed by a conversation and questions from the audience, moderated by Annie Pfeifer, Assistant Professor in the Department of Germanic Languages at Columbia University.

Partner: Thomas Mann House, Krupp Stiftung

When: 20 September, 6-8pm

Where: 1014 Fifth Ave.
